Discuss Private Cloud Planning Guide for Systems Management RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The Private Cloud Planning Guide for Systems Management describes these nine Management Layer capabilities and the impact of private cloud IaaS patterns on their planning and design. The patterns are defined in the Private Cloud Principles, Concepts, and Patterns document and are summarized here:
    • Resource Pooling: Divides resources into partitions for management purposes.
    • Physical Fault Domain: The group of physical resources dependent on a single point of failure such as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
    • Upgrade Domain: A group of resources upgraded as a single unit.
    • Reserve Capacity: Unallocated resources, which take over service in the event of a failed Physical Fault Domain.
    • Scale Unit: A collection of resources treated as a single unit of additional capacity.
    • Capacity Plan: A model that enables a private cloud to deliver the perception of infinite capacity.
    • Health Model: Defines how service or system may remain healthy.
    • Service Class: Defines services that are delivered by IaaS.
    • Cost Model: The financial breakdown of a private cloud infrastructure and its services.

    We hope you like the guide and if you have questions, post them to this thread.
